    Hi Everyone,

    Had an aquarium sitting here for a while. I don't have time to take care of a proper aquarium. The photo does not do it justice at all.

    The costs are as follows. Can get from Amazon/eBay

    Glow/UV Aquarium ornaments. In general priced $2 - $8 each. I spent $40
    Blue Glow Gravel $7
    Blacklight/UV waterproof led strip $40

    Everyone makes very positive comments when they see the aquarium and was very cheap to setup and minimal maintenance. I use an air stone to keep the water moving and oxygenated Once a month I cycle a fresh bucket of water.

    Going to get a lot more UV ornaments. I might try glow in dark backdrop if I can find one.

    You are in so much trouble with my wife coz guess who has just found himself a new thing to spend money on? Yep, that's right - This Guy:thumbup::D

    That looks so awesome mate. Great job And then to add some little fishies, like neons, who would light up with the blacklight!

    Thanks guys. Looks heap better in person.

    There is actually fish called "glowfish" which been genetically modified and glow in the dark. But can't import into Australia which a shame.
